Effect of Aurora Borealis on the Electronic Industry
The Space Weather Prediction Center issued a geomagnetic storm watch on Friday night, that Aurora Borealis is expected to hit the earth.
What is Aurora Borealis
The Aurora Borealis, also known as the northern lights, are beautiful dancing waves of light. This is a spectacular light show, that captivates millions of people.
Redirection of Energized particles
The Earths Magnetic redirects the energized particles from the sun, towards both the poles creating this atmospheric phenomenon.
Effects of Ionosphere and magnetic fields
This redirection of charged particles from the Earth's magnetic field creates large-scale electrical currents affecting the ionosphere, and magnetic fields on the ground.
Effects on electronic and communication
This auroral disturbance on the earth's magnetic field disrupts the power lines, electronic communication, and GPS technologies on earth.
Strength of Auroral Disturbance
The effect upto which the systems could handle depends on the strength of the auroral disturbances, these magnetic particles can shake up the earth's magnetic field.
Crippling of Electric power grids
If the auroral disturbance or the storms are strong enough, this phenomenon can cripple the electric power grid and de-orbit the satellites.
Aurora Borealis and effects
This beautiful imagery fascinates scientists and skywatchers, but if the storm intensifies, it bombards the earth with extreme amounts of energy causing undesirable effects.
